CODE is a mass noun and should not be used in the plural or with an indefinite article.

Not as good as the way we used to wind up our purchasing department by insisting that they got 1% zero ohm links in place of the rubbish 5% ones they always bought.

Haha! Nice.

it's a joke thread, that's why it's in the Bar Sport board
Yes but it is such a bad joke.

And not as good as convincing management to write documents in smaller fonts to save disk space  smiley-twist

That was simply a user input error, as there are no zero ohm resistor, certainly not a room temperature. Put in the real resistance values and it will work.  smiley-wink


Lefty! I took a picture of two of them so you wouldn't say that they didn't exist!
You mean the color code is wrong?

wanna borrow  my milliohm meter? you can measure the resistance of pure copper wire with them =)

so he is right, there is no such thing as a zero ohm resistor at room temperature, its resistance is just so freaking tiny it doesnt matter for 99.99999% of applications

Man, I shouldn't have said it was a joke thread, I could have played this out for 20 pages if I had wanted to. LOL.

au contraire
1/r = infinity so R = 0
notaprob

1/r = ALMOST infinity so R = ALMOST 0  smiley-mr-green
